Mayan Paddle Spinner or Rakestraw spinner - Yew / Oak

Mayan Paddle Spinner or Rakestraw spinner - Yew / Oak

A fun way to spin! It's great for new spinners or children because it uses the 'park and draft' method. Adding twist is achieved by whirling it around like a football rattle.

These tools are featured in Yarnmaker magazine issue 3 (January 2011)

Paddle 7" long (180mm) in yew. Spindle 5" long (130mm) in oak.

Includes very basic leaflet. Search Youtube for instructional videos.

Beautiful-looking spindles which spin beautifully too. The wood is Indian sheesham wood, an old member of the rosewood family.

They weigh 50-60g, whorl 80mm, 10" (250mm) long with a tapered spindle.

Note that being handmade, they may vary a little from the photographs in terms of exact size and weight, wood colour and grain.

Made by a small family firm in India. The 'oily polish' finish is a family formula. It has an exquisite shine and is waterproof.

I include a nest of free fibre with each spinner
